Default Great News!

I took Moka to the vet today because after she was spayed and micro chipped she started a growth on her right side shoulder. I thought it was from the chip but the chip is located between her shoulder blades. Anyway the bump is normal for boxers, they come and go. (waiting for it to go)
(Histiocytoma: The benign canine tumor with a not-so-friendly look and feel.)

Anyway this is what she has. They took a biopsy and I went out of the vet paying another $100.00! It is expensive in Canada. I am glad that it is not cancer. I also asked about her cough and the vet said it is also normal for boxers unless the cough is continual. I am also proud to say that my Moka is eating great. The Doc said she is a good weight of 47lb-8months. not over weight or under. I was worried because she is a picky eater. She sure is fun, playful and lovable. I am so glad we got a boxer!

Moka!!!!! So glad to hear all is going good. Wow! 47lbs & 8 months. Pheona is 48 pounds @ 20 months. They said at our vets office that she's just a small boxer. I'm glad to hear that Moka is doing wonderfully.
